A bit of history on Island Dreams:
In 1999, WLRA and Advocate Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois partnered together in order to raise money for the hospital's Family Assistance Fund. The Fund provides practical assistance to patient families who, through no fault of their own, are suffering severe hardship due to an unexpected illness and either social or economic deprivation. More specifically, the funds go towards paying for such things as critical prescriptions for children, overnight lodging, clothing, and groceries when these items are sorely needed.

To raise money, WLRA created the bi-annual event, "To Kill a DJ," which sees DJs in the program manning a 6 hour non-stop broadcast, with some students going even longer. In the spring, the college of nursing holds a fundraising event called "Change for Children," which also raises money for the Family Assistance Fund. Together, the events have raised over $150,000 to date for the Family Assistance Fund.

In 2011 Marty Kuklinski of WLRA’s Saturday mornings Big Burrito Radio came up with Island Dreams, a tropical themed sketch card set, the sets sold out in less than a day and we raised $2000 for the charity. So far the charity set has raised over $30,000!!

Three years ago we added 3 more charities to our list, they are 1) "COPS 8", a police support organization in New Orleans. 2) New Orleans Musician's Clinic, a free clinic to help local musicians in the Big Easy and 3) Angelman Syndrome Foundation, a support organization for research for a cure for the disease. In 3 years we have raised over $10,000 for these charities.


Welcome to Island Dreams 2019
The Grand Finale!

After 9 years Island Dreams has had a great run.  We raised a lot of money for charity.
I have to extend a HUGE thank you to all the artists that have drawn on the sets over the years.  Without your time and talent this project would have never gotten off the ground.
Many artists have asked if we will have another charity project in 2020. We are working on it.  Time to switch up some of the charities, and switch up the themes.  Stay tuned for more news!!
